    Default Droid MAXX with White Status Bar- Still 4.4

    I'm not incredibly versed in the matter here, but last night I clicked on my phone's check for update feature and it actually had one. I knew that we were upgrading to 4.4.2 soon, but I didn't know when. So I installed the update. When the update finished and I could play with my phone again I noticed that we finally had the white icon bars, but I was still on 4.4 when I checked. As far as I'm concerned I wasn't invited to SOAK test the new OS although I am a member of the Motorola Feedback Community. Any thoughts?

    It was an incremental update. 4.4.2 is still in the works.

    Got mine too. The icon bars are now always white. I don't know why this was changed, because I liked to be able to just check the color to see if I had a real data connection, for example. Now I have to stare at the icon (data or wifi) for a while to see if the little arrows are alive.

    What else did this incremental update do??

    Pull down the settings shade (the notification shade, tap the upper right settings icon, or two finger swipe from the right side of the status bar). The network icons there are white when you have Google connectivity, orange if you do not (I believe - I don't have the update yet...)

    It mainly fixed a network error by updating the baseband and a few supporting files for mobile data. People are also reporting better battery life, but that may be due to the baseband improvements.

    Can I just say I'm not a fan of the white icons. The blue was a nice touch and easier to see if the WiFi connection. Just adding my two cents.

    I wasn't sure how I would feel about the white icons but I do like them

    Same here. I also have trouble telling if my phone is charging until I look much closer. Truth be told for me as well, I find the plain white icons boring. Especially compared to other devices that have a bit more flair.

    Rogue, I agree about the charging. I unplugged and replugged the charger twice because I thought it wasn't charging. Its really hard to see. The white icons seem so plain Jane to me. I think the blue added some class to them. I guess I will get use to it, won't like it, but will get use to it.
